Photographer's Note

Flat terrain is a rare commodity in Gibraltar, and is used efficiently.

On the top of the picture you see approach road on the Spanish town of La Linea de la Concepción. Tightly connected to each other are Spanish and Gibraltar customs. Queue of white minibuses are ready to take tourists to Rock Tour. (Not a bad idea for first time visitors. This shot was taken on such a tour next to great siege tunnels.) On the road connecting Gibraltar to rest of the world you can see British double deckers taking care of the town transport. This road crosses the airport runway on the bottom edge to the picture. Next to it is the control tower, fire station and airport terminal.

And on the tarmac there's white Airbus A320 being refueled. But why doesn't it carry any airline colours?

That aircraft belonged to GB Airways, a company founded in 1931 as Gibraltar Airways. It was a partner of British Airways, carrying BA colours. A couple of months ago the company was acquired by easyJet. Obviously about the first thing new owner did, was to cover colours of the competitor with white paint.
